All in a Row

Martha Stewart Weddings, Volume 36 2006

Glass containers, hand-painted on the inside by us, hold flower clusters arranged along a butter-yellow table runner of wide grosgrain ribbon (from left): Dutch tulips, ranunculuses, parrot tulips and sweet peas, and more Dutch tulips. Stems are clipped short so guests can see one another. Tulip-shaped chocolates (by Droste) are on each plate.

    Painting the inside of the vases: Tape up the outside of the rims with masking tape or painters tapeand pour a little bit of paint in the vase. Swirl the paint around adding more as necessary until the insides are evenly coated, dumping out wany extra. Remove the masking tape when dry.

    My wedding is in Sept. 2008. I explained the concept of "All in a Row" to my florist for my table decor. I recently went to see the sample and I hated it! The florist use grosgrain ribbon that was 3" wide and too small. The florist told me that he did not have access to wider ribbon. I would have to find the ribbon myself or order customized table linens. I have neen searching, but I CANNOT locate extra wide grosgrain ribbon. Does it exist? Can the average person obtain it? Please help!

    I have the same question about the paint--what kind of paint and where can you get it? Also, where do you find ribbon that wide? I would love that in an espresso color, but haven't been able to find an online source.

    How did you handpaint the insides of the vases? Is there a How-To on this?
